Thanks to Inner Wound Recordings for the promo pictures of the band.


Midnight Eternal is the name of a new band from New York and is the brainchild of Operatika members Richard Fischer and Boris Zaks.

Singer Raine Hilai and I hooked up and we had a talk about the album, which has taken the band 2 years to finish, the fact the band has become high profiled in the NY area with only their demo and their support shows to Doro, The Agonist and Quiet Riot amongst others. The album was mixed by the famous Tommy Hansen with art work by Jan Yrlund and is jammed with epic songs perfect for fans of Delain, Nightwish and Kamelot.
